Ken Nicol: Township Melody was only raised three points by the handicappers for her fluent win despite a wide draw against a strong field on Durban July Day, and, back on the Greyville Polytrack from an inside gate, has every chance of following up in Race 4 on Wednesday.
She kept on well after striking the front at the top of the straight on that occasion, and is probably now going to be at her best beyond sprint distances.
She tried this 1400m trip once as a maiden almost exactly a year ago and stayed on a length off useful stablemate Libra.
An added bonus is having Anton Marcus in the saddle and the newly turned four-year-old Pathfork filly has a great chance of recording her third career win.
Miss Milanna, Sorceress and Accidental Tourist make most appeal of the balance in this FM 87 Handicap.
Another top Win bet is in Race 1. Dean Kannemeyer-trained Trippi colt Caprera made eye-catching headway late on debut over the 1200m course here and with even natural improvement will be tough to deny.
Marcus partners what looks the main threat. Lickerio produced a couple of commendable places in the Maiden Plates behind good sorts on the Polytrack, before biting off more than he could chew in the KZN Million on July Day.
Back in this class he seems certain to challenge and taking the Caprera and Lickerio Swinger seems a sure way to make a profit.
Debutantes Canadian Bolt, Path To Texas and Spume all showed up well in their trials and any significant betting support should be respected.
A value bet at what should be a long price is Fullfillyourdream in Race 6.
This Robbie Hill-trained filly has a good record over the course and distance and made steady headway from a widish draw last time.
Her rating was dropped another four points, she gets gifted claimer Luke Ferraris up, and is now drawn one off the paint, which adds up to genuine upset potential.
